We are seeking a Research Fellow in Health Economics to work within Oxford Clinical Trials Research Unit (OCTRU) and the Centre for Statistics in Medicine. This is an exciting opportunity to join a dynamic team and contribute to the design, analysis and presentation of results of collaborative clinical research projects, mostly randomised clinical trials across the different units within OCTRU and the Centre for Statistics in Medicine. This will involve interacting directly with researchers, helping to ensure the completion and delivery of projects within deadlines and contributing to maintaining the projects’ scientific quality and integrity.
As a Research Fellow in Health Economics, you will contribute to trial-based economic evaluations and decision-analytic modelling based economic evaluations under the direction of Senior Health Economist and co-investigators. Your responsibilities will include: conducting analyses of study data, working on CTU Standard Operating Procedures, publishing results of research and scholarship in peer-reviewed journals and producing reports about the progress of the studies for internal use as well as for the funding bodies. You will participate in OCTRU’s teaching programme and attend departmental meetings and participate in committees and other working groups.
You will hold (or be close to completing) a PhD in health economics or other closely related subject. You will have: an experience of application of economic techniques relevant to the health sciences and experience of statistical software (e.g. SPSS, STATA or SAS). The ability to write research reports and papers in styles accessible to both - academic and other audiences as well as excellent communication, presentation skills and an ability to work well as a part of a research team are essential. An ability to teach and organise teaching and experience of obtaining funding for methodical research are desirable.
A lower grade offer may be made (Grade 6: £28,098 - £33,518 p.a.) with commensurate reduction in responsibilities if a suitable candidate cannot be found to fill the Grade 7 position.
You will be required to upload a CV and supporting statement as part of your online application.
